Scrappin Time!

This first LO I did while my husband was kind enough to allow me a day to myself without the kiddos. To bad I only got 2 pages done that day. Oh well......I had a friend over scrappin' with me so it was time well spent. I used a sketch based on Pages in Time blog week of May 13th (2010) The small rose in the upper corner is a rose I made myself. The 3 flowers in the bottom corner I also made and then added Recollection mini roses in the center. The feather is a Hobby Lobby special (I love wandering that store looking in other departments for all kinds of goodies to use on my scrappin'!) I used bling and again used my cricut to cut the background paper.

"This is how we roll" sketch is based off CraftySprinkles Scraps of Darkness #106 sketch. I used the water distressing on this layout (2nd time ever doing this technique) Everything is done using older supplies in my stash except the bling. The title is done in Thickers.

This is truly a unusual photo. My son was allowing my daughter to "drive" his power wheels. She can't even touch the petal but he usually won't even allow her near the steering wheel. She is usually content in the passenger side playing with the radio. Isn't that SUCH a typical woman?!?!?! :)

Ohhhh I had fun with this one. Let me start by saying the sketch used is by Suepup (again, I know but I LOVE her sketches!!) This one is 10-03-10. And again, this one turned out much different than the original sketch. For one I used one vertical photo instead of 2 horizontal ones. Plus I didn't add florishes and much girly stuff. The white border running the center of the page is Queen and Company felt self adhesive ribbon. Dragonfly, Hobby Lobby, papers-older paper stash, mini roses-Recollections. The title came from my "Graphically Speaking" cricut cart. I also cut the ladybugs out using the "Walk in my Garden" cart. I took some "grass' that I found in the Hobby Lobby floral section and cut just the tips off. I then took some old hard plastic casing that came from an old package and stamped my image of a mason jar on it. I then cut around it. I glued (using hot glue) the grass to the bottom of the mason jar with my ladybugs tucked away in the grass and slid the jar behind my makeshift grass (the grass I cut for my border) to hide the hot glue mess! Then I proceded to VERY CAREFULLY finish gluing around my jar. I didn't want to have the mess of the glue showing so I just did a very fine thin line and then pressed down firmly. Looks fine!!! I had a blast using that jar stamp and making the ladybugs. I have had that stamp for years and never used it. I finally found my photo opportunity since my son was looking in a mason jar in the picture!!! That's what I call picture perfect. :)
